    I just dl'd maildroid. Since I have only one email account, is there a setting so my account automatically opens without me having to click on the account once I open up MD
    Not in the current version (not yet, but it is coming)

    Just read 33 pages of this thread to find out more about MailDroid v K-9, and I am highly impressed with @maildroiddev and the awesome support and active dev work; my hats off to you. I'll definitely be purchasing the pro version to support all of the great work. I am about to convert from my crackberry/BIS to a DroidX, which email is a critical app to handle multiple POP3 accounts.

    My desktop is main email client (Outlook), which pulls emails off of the various POP3 account servers. I would love the option to automatically Bcc: myself from MailDroid so I can pull my mobile responses onto my desktop client to keep track of various email threads/my responses.

    Question/wish list:
    Does MailDroid have an option to automatically prefill in Bcc: for mail-to-self per POP3 email account? If not, this is a much welcomed option I'd love to have. I believe K-9 Mail has this feature.

    yes K-9 Mail has the feature. I stopped using Maildroid because the Yahoo IMAP idle doesnt seem to be working anymore...I switched back to K-9 just because it has many more features that Maildroid doesnt. Unless MD plays at level of K-9, its not worth the effort.

    I can not speak for Maildroid, because I have only had the Droid X for a few weeks and say K-9 first, so I tried that.

    K-9 does offer bcc to email address, which I absolutely love. This way, whenever I send an email from handheld, I will get it on my desktop as well. I also like that K-9 as option to delete mail from server, however, I have found that it takes an extra step for me to actually delete from server (for example, if I hit delete on phone, it goes to trash. I then have to go to trash and delete from that folder in order for it to delete from server).

    If Maildroid does both of these, I am highly considering checking it out as well.

    Thanks. There is already a way to CC or BCC an account by default each time you send an email. I did not do self-bcc as I figured that locks you down to one account and instead made a way to CC or BCC any number of accounts (you can have mail1;mail2;mail3 etc.)

    1. You will have to give me more details as it always deletes from server (pop3 or imap). The biggest feature requested is to have an option to 'not' delete from server and just phone as right now I always will sync a delete.

    2. Yes. In your inbox, click menu and you will see an option to Move to Folders. I use the general term folders, instead of the gmail specific term labels. They are the same idea...

    K-9 is a great product. You need to use what works well for you. Many people can't get yahoo to work on k-9 but can get it to work on MD.

    Delete from phone only is coming in the next version. As stated before, the BCC option is already there.

    After reading your later post and playing some more, I found the problem...it's me!!!

    Things are working good. Just need to learn more about it.

    I agree having the option to delete from device only or device and server would be great.

    Thanks for your help.

    Oh, my account is imap.

    Are you working on the loading feature for imap so it stays on my phone and does not have to load up each time along with not having to choose an account when you only have one (I believe you mentioned these in previous threads)> add those along with the other updates and I will be a very happy camper. already love the app.

    Since last upgrade I am not receiving emails overnight unless I re-boot. I never had to do this before. It only seems to happen while Inc is on charger for long periods of time.

    Does this have anything to do with Prevent Sleep Mode? I have it set to "no" to save battery. It still notifies me when screen has gone dark as far as I can tell. Or is the fact that it is on the charger play a role?

    Thanks.

    Do you have a rule set up? I have a default rule set up for night, perhaps that just needs to be deleted.

    Maybe I wasn't clear enough. Doesn't the Rule simply turn off the programmed notifications during the stipulated time period and days? What is happening since the last upgrade is that I am not receiving the emails at all until I do a soft boot. If I have the Prevent Sleep Mode set to no does that mean emails will not be received until I open MD or just that I will not be notified when an email comes in (gMail). During the day when I am using the device frequently it notifies me when the screen is dark and locked even though I have Prevent Sleep Mode set to "no". Made it would help if you explain exactly what Prevent Sleep Mode does. If set to no what and when will I receive notifications of new mail.

    Thanks.

    I am redoing sleep mode a bit in the next version, so better to explain it then. However, now that I understand what you are saying it is a good question. When you said you were getting the mail during the day and not at night, I guessed a rule. But, it seems you don't mean notifications and instead mean actually push/pull (when it is plugged in).

    Let's take this off the thread. Shoot me an email at maildroiddev at gmail. I'll work with you there.

    One suggestion would be to have a button like k-9 that you can retrieve new emails right from the screen instead of having to hit the menu button and then the refresh button to get new emails. On K-9 you just hit the "get new messages" button on the screen . Makes it easier for one handed operation and when driving and you want to check email but dont want to take your eyes off the road. you can just leave the email open and touch the screen.

    Also is there a way to re-order the Email accounts. I put 5-6 in and want the most used one to be on top of the list.

    Also can you define which account is the main account for sending emails ?

    Thanks its a great email app and while I am still using K-9 its probally only a matter of time until I am using MailDroid.
